ShowTex is a worldwide leader in inventing, manufacturing and installing innovative flame retardant fabrics, tracks and motion control systems for achieving the creative vision of theatre, event and entertainment professionals.
The Millennium Pavilion in Helsinki is wrapped in ShowTex fabrics to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Millennium Technology Prize, Finland's tribute to life-enhancing technological innovation.
All around the pavilion, white Molton CS curtains make up the walls of the venue, creating a stylish and inherently flame-retardant setting. The white Scandinavian concept continues in the ceiling decoration, where custom sails made of white PolyStretch P8 CS Matt stretch fabric give a clean finish and add depth to the room.
On stage, a backdrop of Spaghetti Event string curtains in front of a black Molton drape creates the perfect setting for more than two weeks of events, leading up to the actual award ceremony of this year’s Millennium Technology Prize.
